Second. Why is Don't Ease Me In a song that never excites me when I see it in a set list, but always makes be happy when I hear it?
Third. This is the ONLY time you'll hear Shakedown > Franklin's. I noted the oddity of St. of Circumstance > Franklin's a few nights earlier. Obviously Jerry was looking for a way to play it that made sense. I'm thinking shakedown wasn't quite it...

Jim Wise's recording of this show is one of the finest audience tapes of Grateful Dead music ever made. Thank you, Jim.
I'm forever in his debt; this tape was one of the first 5 cassettes I received in 1982, when an older Head gave me the key by giving me my first tapes of live Grateful Dead. I've worn out many, many copies of this show numerous times over the past thirty years.
Still need more proof? Go read the 45 reviews from another source of this show, then come back and download this one.
Phil: I know you've been known to scour the Archive from time to time. If by some freak chance you ever read this, thanks for this night, especially your slides up and down the fretboard during the zenith of Space > The Other One. As a 14-year old kid listening to my first cassettes, I knew you were laying down some serious juju this night.
Subject: great recording! Great show!
Subject: Good To The Last Drop
I also agree with Dr. Unclear's review and would add... that..
..this is an astonishingly, intensely beautiful recording and performance. This show merits 9 stars. Even the drum solos are hot.
Kudos again to all and to Archives.com
